Pleasant expectation of the New Year is associated with fabulous memories, faith in a miracle and with those gifts that we found under the tree. Of course, there are times when our parents played the role of Santa Claus in the past, and now we surprise our children, loved ones and work colleagues.
Hobby Gift Ideas
When the choice is difficult, it's time to find out about the hobby of employees. Gifts for hobbies will be very relevant.
If among colleagues there are women who are fond of handicrafts, you can purchase special sets for them on the topic or literature. Perhaps someone from the staff loves to cook? Get cookies for cakes or muffins. If there are lovers of home flowers in the team, the original pots for plants will be appropriate.
As for men's hobbies, they often enjoy fishing, hunting, sports, and young people pay special attention to gadgets. Focusing on their interests, you can choose useful gifts.
Gift Ideas by Profession
Working in a particular team, take into account the occupation, that is, the profession. I present a list of gifts for colleagues who will be relevant to the New Year:
- items with engraving (pens, cups);
- diaries and notebooks;
- stands for office supplies;
- lunch boxes;
- business card holders;
- key rings and key holders.
These options are suitable for both women and men.
Ideas by age
If the team employs exclusively young and fun people, you can choose the following options:
- cool and unusual covers for documents;
- signs with a funny meaning for the office;
- dishes in the form of beer mugs or cups with funny pictures and inscriptions;
- a balloon to get answers to questions;
- original lighters or ashtrays for smokers;
- T-shirts and baseball caps with cool quotes, images.
If there are people of different ages among colleagues, the choice is difficult, so pay attention to the following options:
- oil burner;
- kitchen accessories;
- LED candle;
- cute items for interior decoration;
- organizer for cosmetics.
As for the "male" gifts, you can stop the attention on the following subjects:
- automotive thermocup;
- car stand for mobile phone;
- smartphone case with many features;
- ball pen, made in the original design.
Universal ideas for colleagues for the New Year 2019
You can choose gifts that are equally pleasant to men and women. The easiest of all New Year's options - Christmas decorations. You can also prepare more useful ideas: stationery items, a compact flashlight for reading books, bookmarks.
A great gift will be a variety of goodies: chocolate, champagne, tea, coffee, fruit in the original packaging or a cake for the team. Do not forget about homemade cookies that can be decorated with icing and a variety of confectionery powders.
What gifts to do with your own hands
If you are sure of a good end result, you can safely get to work and do something at home. What can be done?
- Charms of beads.
- Cup holders.
- Baskets for jewelry.
- Photo Frames.
Do not forget about baking, which I talked about in this article. From delicious cakes, no one has responded.
What you should not give to colleagues
Perhaps you think that a gift card or certificate is a great gift, but it will only complicate things.
Experts do not recommend buying items with company logos, as well as personal items. For example, perfume, deodorant or shower gel - not the best items for a new year's surprise.
Buy cheap gifts, so as not to embarrass them with the value of colleagues. At the same time, do not choose very cheap options so that employees feel the care and desire to make something pleasant.
If you want to find the right gift for colleagues, follow these guidelines:
- Pricing policy - cost does matter, so try to find a balance.
- Age and gender are important in preparation, so consider these factors or choose versatile things.
- Internal relations in the team. If everyone is friendly, you can give a common gift, for example, coffee, tea, cake, which you can try with the whole team, sit around the table, chat, remember interesting stories and simply congratulate on the upcoming holiday.
- Do not buy low-quality trinkets that break in minutes. At the same time, you can purchase statues and other souvenirs, reminiscent of the symbol of the year. In 2019, the patron saint of the year is the Yellow Earth Pig; therefore, piggy banks in the form of a yellow pig or a figure will suit.
The choice of presents is a laborious and responsible process, so it is important to approach it with all seriousness so that the items purchased are not only unexpected, but also pleasant. I hope the article will help you make the right choice and fill the New Year holidays with a wonderful atmosphere.
